My cousin Elias was 16 when he was first diagnosed with leukaemia, but despite this never gave up fighting during his five-year battle, he beat cancer three times. Elias was fortunate to have state of the art treatment at the UCHL (University College Hospital London) in their Haematology Cancer Care department. Research, in time, will find the answers however, Elias lost his battle and passed away in August 2018 aged just 22.
Elias' positivity, humour and strength inspire me to never give up, therefore, I am going to be taking part in a 3 day sponsored bike ride from Paris to London. 175 miles, with no excuses. 65 miles on day one, 45 on day two and 50 on the last.
I want to raise money to help fund making Leukaemia curable and every penny you donate brings this closer.
All the money I raise will go to the UCLH Haematology Cancer Care but ring-fenced for a specific research project known as The Elias Taylor Vegas after party.
